Valley Precision has finished fabricating the 4th revision of the S401 and it should be in my hands tomorrow. I know I have not been updating this page as often as I'd like but rest assured that I'm working on both the S401 and the S700 in every spare minute of my time (which isn't much). A 4 year old and a newborn consume both my wife's and my time. I'm very close to complete with the S401, this prototype will be the first prototype to include all the parts for a completed case - so I'm also very excited. I'll try to post some pictures in the next few days of the S401.
As far as the rest of the supplies are concerned, I've purchased and received nearly everything I'll need to assemble and ship the cases once they are fabricated. I will be manufacturing 125 S401 units in the first batch. One hundred of these will be powder coated a fine texture black while the remaining 25 will be left unpainted. These I will offer to custom powder coat for a premium price.
I'm nearing completion of the 1st revision of the S700. I've managed to make the flex slot quite dynamic for such a small case. I'm still ironing out some clearance issues when water blocks are being used on the GPUs, but I should have this revision completed by Monday July 9th. Take a look at the video below to see some of the options for the flex slot.
